I often get lost in Instagram wormholes ogling fashionistas’ pretty dresses and statement pieces. However, the practical side of me wonders where on Earth are these people going or doing that justify elaborate outfits? Or, are they REALLY wearing that strappy high heel on a cobbled street?! In the era of social media, it’s easy to feel “less” when you see such pretty images. I certainly do especially since I am on maternity leave and don’t have any upcoming occasions that requires a fancy garb.
For the past three months, I have been living in three main pieces, my Zella high waisted leggings, Vince slip on sneakers, and Karen Walker sunnies. They are practical and comfortable, but they don’t make me feel stylish. That’s why I bought this powder blue coat on major sale from J. Crew to get me out of my rut. It’s amazing what a tailored coat in a bright color will do for your look and your mood! It’s still the same reliable staples underneath but with a little more pep to their step!
